Every open source movie has a business being on the Internet, even movies you don't agree with. That's why it's called learning! Condemn the movie on its merits or message, not the free speech. This is 'Merica, Bud...we don't ban speech just because it's offensive. Your suggested practice only flies in Europe and Canada and totalitarian regimes (think Russia and China, et al). Thanks.

Actually, I'm perfectly fine with the movie being on internet, when I think about it. I'm just not fine with the comment posted with it. The comment is not an historical document, it's just offensive to jewish people. Please consider letting the movie online but removing the comment that goes with it.

I agree there's a difference between allowing current/historical art to exist for educational purposes (hateful or not), and giving certain groups another platform for their social ideals. Yes, if the comments are offensive, this isn't the place for them. Folks should go elsewhere on the Internet to openly discuss the merits (and absolute folly) of racism--this isn't the place.
